Hi !
200,000 kms is a lot ...
all you need to do is put new piston rings.. this will increase the compression resulting in better performance.

On a 2004 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 it take about 30 sec to start I put a fuel gauge and it takes a while for the fuel to reach 45 psi I have to cycle the key on n off about 4 times then it will start after i

a while? 1sec, 1min 1hr?

filter, packed,
where is gage sensor on rail.?
ever get a full tune up?:
the fsm is free here.
tj unlimited?
2 systems dead head or loop and is key to diagnosis.
looking now.,
49.2psi is spec, +-5 page 2 (so pump is good) but?/...
it is loop but no fuel pump reg at rail.
that is rail pressure not anywhere else.
at 44 you key off the pressure must hold for 1/2 min. or you fail
leak down test, (injector leaks or check ball in pump)
if the check ball fails it will take many key on to get full pressure
2 or 3 second pump runs, each key:?
see why?> unplug injectors see if leak down passes/?
all filters and socks in take, below pump

so it fails leakdown
the only way to find this is to block rail input. line,
if it still leaks tank drops
if it stops the injectors leak (for all those reasons)

the tank regulator has its own loop return feed back
so the rail really is a dead head, with one line there.

I just recently replaced the spark plugs and wires on my 97 jeep wrangler, and the gas millege seems to have gotton a whole lot worse. What do you think could be wrong with it?

I would check to see if the fuel filter is clogged. You may have a gas leak. Your fuel injectors may be leaking as well. Make sure the tires are at correct inflation. If they are low, you will use more gas. You can also drop a fuel injector cleaner into the gas tank to see if that will help.

Excel problems

Have you checked the primary gauze filter that is part of the fuel pump located in the fuel tank. You may have got a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged this filter which would cause fuel starvation when demand increases.

OBD test resulted in a "too lean bank 1" diagnostics. How do I adjust the air/fuel mixture on the 97 Tj, 2.5L, multi point fuel injected engine to meet required specs.

There is no fuel mixture to adjust,this is done by the computer,the fuel filter might be the problem,or the injectors are in need of cleaning,use a treatment for the fuel such as luas,this will clean them ,and use less fuel as possible when added,if this does not fix the problem,have the fuel pressure checked the lean burn can be from weak fuel pressure from the fuel pump.

Hesitation, stalling like out of gas

Clogged Catalytic Converter. What happens is as you push down harder on the accelerator you force more gas into the system causing a slightly richer mixture and more exhaust flow is neccessary. The easiest way to look for a clogged cat is when it's dark out take it for a ride causing it perform it's problem look under the vehicle if the cat is literally glowing red hot you either have a clogged cat or an extremely rich fuel mixture.

1989 Jeep Wrangler Standard wont start

You have to check if this is fuel or spark related. You HAVE to put a filter in the system or the fuel injectors will get clogged. Check for spark first. If you have a good spark at the plugs, then your problem may be fuel related. If uou don't have any spark, then the problem could be a bad crank sensor.
